Bruce, Jack, Ort, Boo, Tara, Runt, and Loudmouth, purebred American shorthairs from Ames, Iowa. "All my kittens were partially raised by 'Uncle' Baker," writes cameobaker. "As soon as mom was done with her babies, Baker would take over, cleaning them, keeping them in line, and letting them 'nurse' off him. As you can see, the love between them was completely mutual. I don't have kittens any more, and I lost Baker two years ago, so this is a very special picture to me."
